My fellow Ghanaian sold me – Migrant

One of the Libyan migrants who arrived home Wednesday night has revealed that he was sold by a fellow Ghanaian in the unstable Northern Africa country.

About one hundred and twenty-seven (127) Ghanaian migrants returned from Libya with one in a critical condition.

The migrants were transported by two flights, Air Libya and Afriqiya Airways following their rescue from detention centres in Libya after reports of slave trade of migrants in the country went viral on the internet.

The visibly distressed returnee upon arrival said the experience is so harrowing he would not want to imagine it again.

“What I found myself in Libya, I wouldn’t wish for even my worst enemy, we were sold like bread by our own fellow Ghanaians. And it was a very disheartening experience. We went through the desert and some of us disappeared without a trace and others were shot and killed, luckily for some of us, we were able to escape and were arrested and brought to the deportation centre,” He told Starr News Eric Mawuena Egbeta who monitored proceedings at the Airport.

The footage of men being auctioned off as slaves in Libya has been met with outrage and the UN Secretary-General has called on the international community to “unite in fighting this scourge”.
